  6. His skating is so awesome. Why don't they answer my questions??!! I hope they do these questions more often.

    Wes H. Posted: 9 years ago
  7. I love the new words you guys make up, like "puestions" and "loks."

  8. Wouter, why do think he's "wack"? I mean, aside from his looks and the way he acts around people, I could see why you could consider him "wack". However, if you've ever seen the Yeah Right! video or even the Menikmati video, then I'm sure you'd change your perception about Mr. McCrank up there. He's a cool dude. He dosen't follow any fashion trends, nor does he have any preference when it comes to skateboarding. He's an all around awesome guy.

  13. I taught him maths once, he was with jungleman at the time.

  14. i heard some kids yesterday in the local park talking about a friend of them who heard maccrank saying he was leaving to lakai also, and when i think about it, may be true, since koston was like his best friend on éS, and now that he's out, maccrank may be feeling odd.

    MONBUKAGAKUSHO Posted: 8 years ago
  15. I hope that thats not true.

    peter Posted: 8 years ago
  16. hopefully YéS will be out before that happens

    MONBUKAGAKUSHO Posted: 8 years ago
  17. Do you think Koston will get on the Lakai roster fast enough to have a part in Fully Flared? I'd rather see him in y'es, but thats not going to happen.

    Wes H. Posted: 8 years ago
  18. of course

    MONBUKAGAKUSHO Posted: 8 years ago
  19. i dont think koston was McCranks ONLY friend on Es, he's not some lurker who only hangs out with one guy, i think, ive never met him but im asuming. i think he's rad were he is, and hopefully that puts him into the last part in Yes.

    skate-life Posted: 8 years ago
  21. How was it when you FIRST got on es.Was it a differnt change from skating with your neighbor hood friends or did they make you feel like at home and comfortable being on the team skating with them .You didnt act differnt around the es team then you did your friends to try to fit in??

    Mr.J-dizzle Posted: 8 years ago
